Voyagers Adult Forums are held following worship on Sundays. Please check the Bethesda calendar for the schedule of topics.
Bethesda is discerning whether we’d like to become a Reconciling in Christ congregation. Reconciling in Christ, or RIC, is a designation for a church that publicly welcomes and affirms individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual and/or more (LGBTQIA+). Church Council approved a Task Force to help lead this discernment when they met earlier this year in February. Sign-up by clicking here, to learn more at two ZOOM Voyager Adult Forums . . .
1) JUNE 7: A presentation on LGBTQIA+ topics: what our RIC Task Force does/plans to do at Bethesda; info on what the LGBTQIA+ letters stand for; and how to be a good ally. Join us to learn more about how we can better welcome the LGBTQIA+ community at Bethesda.
2) JUNE 14: Reconciled in Christ BIble Study, led by our Pastors. Join us to learn more about the six homosexuality “clobber” passages.
In the weeks that follow, we will embark on a 6-week book study of Unclobber: Rethinking Our Misuse of the Bible on Homosexuality, by Colby Martin. The book study is tentatively scheduled on Mondays (beginning June 22) from 7-8:30pm, and format (virtual or in-person) is TBD.
